Men's Basketball - Wed, May 30, 2012

New Orleans, LA -- Dillard University head men's basketball coach, Bernard Griffith, has announced the signing of Jarrain Jenkins from White Castle High School in White Castle, LA.

Jenkins, a 6-4 forward, from White Castle, LA led his team to the LHSAA Class 1A state championship game during his senior season.  He averaged 19.4 points per game and 9.2 rebounds per game. His outstanding performance earned their team a 26-8 overall record and 10-0 district record. As a senior, Jenkins earned all-State - 1st team, all-district - 1st team, all-metro selection - 1st team and District 7-1A Most Valuable Player honors. He also earned Maxpreps.com player of the week six times during the 2011-12 season. He also scored a career and season high of 38 points and 14 rebounds versus Southern Lab this season.

Jenkins is as impressive in the classroom as he is on the court. He is an honor student and has maintained above a 3.0 grade point average over his high school academic career. His academic performance has led him to being named to the honor roll. Among other accolades, he also received the award for perfect attendance.

Jenkins plans to major in Physical therapy at Dillard University. "My college goals are to get an education first and then see if my talents can lead me to the NBA or play basketball overseas," says Jenkins. "If that does not work out then I will work to become a physical therapist." When asked how he has maintained the academic/athletic balance, he credits his family. "I would like to thank my mom, dad, uncles and aunts, and grandmother for being there for me and making sure I stay on the right path in life."
